This Sunday's Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers features a matchup between the two best teams in the NFL this season, but much of the media attention has been fixated on the matchup between Denver quarterback Peyton Manning and Carolina quarterback Cam Newton.
Manning has been the Gold Standard at the quarterback position ever since he came into the league as the first overall pick of the 1998 draft by the Indianapolis Colts. This last season was probably one of his worst as a pro due to a number of nagging injuries, but Manning was able to show the world why he is a future "Hall of Famer" by leading his team back to the Super Bowl with stirring victories against Pittsburgh and New England in the playoffs.
Love him or hate him, Newton is on the verge of becoming the face of the NFL after a MVP performance in the regular season and a couple stellar outings against Seattle and Arizona in his team's two postseason matchups. He was also the first overall pick in the NFL Draft back in 2011 by Carolina and his incredible combination of strength, size and speed makes Cam the prototypical quarterback for today's game.
I have Carolina winning this game by more than the current 5.5-point spread, but Denver would have to still be a sentimental favorite in what could very well be Manning's final game of his storied career. Either way, I have come up with a pair of top prop picks for both of these players for Sunday's game.
My confidence factor is high for all four of these picks and I have all intentions of going out with a bang by cashing-in big on my final NFL props of the year.
